Library exhibits allow students to take a deep dive into library collections, cultural history, and much more. The exhibits are coordinated and put together by our exhibits director, Lourdes Santamaria-Wheeler. As the director, she ensures there is a great amount of exhibits to explore and learn from all across campus, especially in Smathers Library, Library West, and Marston.

The amount of times these exhibits change depends on each library and the section/floor that they are found on. For example, the Smathers Panama Canal Gallery changes at the start of every spring semester. Visit often to see what new items are being showcased.

Along with the in-person exhibits, there is a variety of online exhibitions that can be explored from anywhere.
